Old Mar 25th, 2008, 01:32 AM        Games you just fucking gave up on.
Because they were horrible, too hard, too boring, any reason counts!

I've really been trying to play Morrowind, trying really hard. I had somewhere around 30 mods running, and even with all that, I really can't get past the fact that it's a completely abysmal, boring, unentertaining piece of shit. Playing Oblivion for real for the first time earlier today really sealed Morrowind's fate for me. Even unmodded, I was able to have infinitely more fun in about an hour playing that than I've had during all my 15+ hours hours wasted on Morrowind.

Fuck you, Morrowind, you are the worst game in the entire world. I sort of like your story, and wish you were just a book. You'd probably suck a lot less!

You've just got to grind for a bit to gain a few levels, and use the downward jumping stab to kill tougher enemies.

And seriously, GW, stop play game in the Elder Scrolls series. And once you've stopped, don't start again.

Yeah, I figured that out. I ground to level 4 or so and then ran through the first dungeon holding down the attack button and one-shotting all of the enemies.

Then one of those blue demons killed me and I had to start over ;_;

Also, as I said before, I like the universe it's set in. It is INTERESTING. It's something I want to go and explore and would be totally great if the game wasn't awful :<

It's sort of like, if an INCREDIBLE TREASURE were hidden deep within the flesh of my right leg, and if I got ahold of it it would be wonderful and make all my dreams come true, and all I have to do is cut the fuck out of my leg to get at it. Then I start to do that and am like, "this is terrible, why am I doing this."
And I like the Legacy of Kain universe, but that doesn't mean I'm going to play Blood Omen II again.

I guess what I'm saying is that you're a sucker. Quit being a sucker for ES games. You may like the universe, but the gameplay's never going to change, so cut it out.

I've never finished a single RPG besides Chrono Cross (and Pokemons Blue and Gold if those even really count). What's sad is that I really enjoy most of the Final Fantasies I have, but for some reason I always reach a point where I get bored and tell myself "eh, just play another game for a few days, then come back to this," but then I just never regain the willpower to pick up where I left off. But these days I don't even bother with RPGs at all because I know I don't have the time.

Actually, Chrono Cross is the only Playstation RPG I've ever even gotten to disc 2 on.

Edit: oh, I usually finish Zelda games, though, if those count as RPGs.

I don't know what the hell version you're playing, but my PS copy of Chrono Trigger only has one disc.

Oh, yeah, Silent Hill 2.

I probably would have finished it despite how much I don't like anything about it, but I got bored wandering around the prison looking for the last sin tablet to put in the plaque under the noose and then just didn't play it again

condemned, but that was after the first stage ;<
bioshock, after a few hours
half life 2, after 4 hours
stranglehold, after the parking garage scene, due to the 360's awful controls for that game
duke nukem 3d, after realizing the level design was terrible
morrowind, after getting the star of nerevar or something ;<
oblivion, at various points (reformats usually kill my oblivion games due to all the mods not being the same)
countless mmos
ninja gaiden 2 after that wind stage jesus christ what the fuck
mario 64, about 40 stars in

pretty much my life has been an endless succession of failed gaming attempts!

Ninja Gaiden for the NES. That last boss raped me. Many, many, many times. I have nightmares about it sometimes.

I never finished Twilight Princess, because I had already completed everything else except the very last boss and I thought "well this is it anyway".

This goes for countless other games as well. In fact I don't think I've ever 100% finished a game in the last 10 years.

With the exception of freeware games and emulators now and then, I've given up on videogames in general

Why is guitar woman ALWAYS complaining about how she has been playing some game for several hours and hates it?

Here is a pro gamer tip for your GW: If you've played a game for a couple of hours and completely hate it don't bother playing anymore. Even more importantly; shut up about how much you hate it because no one cares.

No one is forcing you to play anything and I sincerely doubt you bothered to pay for it, so you're not going to be out of pocket if you delete it.

I finish less than half the games I start, mostly because I get bored. I have a short attention span.

I gave up on Friday the 13th for NES when I was a little kid because Jason coming at me in the water scared the hell out of me. I don't know why.

I give up on pretty much every game I play. Then months or years later I go back to it and decide I have no idea what is going on or what I am supposed to be doing, so I delete my save games and start all over again, only to abandon it in a couple of weeks.

The best example of that is Vagrant Story. I have restarted that at least 5 times.

Morrowind is the first game in a few years that I acutally bought, that gives me the right to be ANGRY :<


Also, as I said before, I like the universe it's set in. It is INTERESTING. It's something I want to go and explore and would be totally great if the game wasn't awful :<

It's sort of like, if an INCREDIBLE TREASURE were hidden deep within the flesh of my right leg, and if I got ahold of it it would be wonderful and make all my dreams come true, and all I have to do is cut the fuck out of my leg to get at it. Then I start to do that and am like, "this is terrible, why am I doing this."

But also the treasure is really boring and colorless and I probably actually wouldn't care anyway.

NiGHTS journey of dreams: i ended up trading this in towards brawl so it would only cost 10 bucks, but yeah, i really tried to like this game. the visuals were nice and the control scheme (no, not the wiimote one) was somewhat fun, but the artificial time limit was annoying. there was absolutely no reason for me to only have 120 seconds to destroy some dragon mouth floor disappearer that bursts into little bubbles that i have to fly around in circles to destroy.

but then again, maybe the entire game doesn't really make sense :/
